Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe and fun holiday season with your family and friends. Some of you may have made a New Year’s resolution yesterday. If that resolution is to come to more programs at the library, you are in luck! We are starting off 2013 with several great events for you and your kiddos. If you made a different resolution, I suppose we’ll still allow you to come to our programs. But maybe you can consider it for next year? J Here are a few of the events coming up soon:

January 7th 10:00 A.M. – Storytime Registration

It’s almost time to register for our 6-week winter storytime session. Registration begins at 10 a.m. on Monday, January 7th. Preschool (for ages 3-5 years) and evening storytimes do not require registration, but if you want to sign up your baby (6-18 months) or toddler (18-36 months) for one of our weekly storytimes, make sure you sign up early; our spots fill up fast! The easiest way to register is online at, but you can also register by phone or in person at either library. Storytimes for this session will begin the week of January 14th.
January 8th 10:30-11:30 A.M. (Centerville Library) – Baby Boogie

Your little ones (6-36 months) will boogie themselves silly with our favorite storytime songs and activities. There is no registration required, so there’s nothing stopping you from coming to this fun-filled event!

January 9th 10:00-11:00 A.M. (Centerville Library) – Fun With Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?

This workshop, part of our Every Child Ready to Read program, is for parents and children (birth-5 years). Parents will learn how to incorporate early literacy activities into everyday reading, writing, singing, talking, and playing with your children. Parents and children will have the opportunity to practice using some of these new tools. Registration is required for this event (, and space is limited.

January 14th 7:00-9:00 P.M. (Centerville Library) – Kindergarten: Ready or Not?
This program, for adults only, will include a panel of local kindergarten teachers and a library staff member (yours truly) who will be discussing the ideal skills and traits children should have at the beginning of kindergarten. There will be time for questions at the end. If you have a preschooler (or younger!) at home, this is a great, informative program. There is no registration required for this event.
I hope to see you and your little ones at the library soon!
